He thinks “the previous debate about armed Bundeswehr drones is insufficient,” its co-chairman Norbert Walter-Borjans surprisingly told the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” on December 8th and added: “The line between defending life and limb Our soldiers and killing with the joystick is very thin. ”Both the Ministry of Defense and the Defense Committee of the Bundestag had public hearings to comply with the condition of the coalition agreement between the Union and the SPD, according to which the Bundestag only“ after a detailed international, constitutional and ethical assessment ” should decide the procurement of drone armament. In front of the Bundestag, Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU) concluded on November 25th: "We are in favor of arming drones so that we can protect our soldiers."
